KENDALL SC ALUMNI EARN RECOGNITION FOR COLLEGIATE ACCOMPLISHMENTS

February 12, 2010 – Six graduates of the Kendall Soccer Coalition program earned All-Conference honors this past college soccer season in recognition of their on-field performance. Chief among them were Alan Sanchez, who capped his senior season at North Carolina State University with his third career All-ACC selection; and Bryan Perez, who was named the Summit League Offensive Player of the Year in his last year at the University of Missouri – Kansas City.

For the third time in his career, Alan Sanchez was named to the ACC’s all-conference squad, snagging first-team honors. As a freshman in 2006, he was named second-team, and repeated that honor last season. Sanchez is the first Wolfpack player to be named to the ACC’s first-team since Aaron King in 2005. He was second on the team with seven goals, and ranked second on the Pack in both points (23) and assists (9). Sanchez was tied for seventh in the ACC in points, and was fifth in assists.

 

Bryan Perez, a midfielder who graduated from Miami Killian High School, led the University of Missouri -Kansas City Kangaroos and The Summit League with 11 goals and three assists for a total of 25 points. The 11 goals were tied for the second most in a single season, while the 25 points were tied for the third most in UMKC history. He became UMKC’s second consecutive Offensive Player of the Year recipient following Brian Harris’ selection last season. He was also honored as a First Team all-League selection for the third straight season, and became the first player in school history to be a three-time all-region selection when he was named to the NSCAA all-Midwest Region Second Team.

Perez closed out his UMKC career with his name scattered prominently in the school record book. He finished as the record holder in goals (29), points (70), shots (160) and games played (78). He is also one of just seven players in school history to score a hat trick, as he accomplished the feat in the 4-3 win over Drake on Sept. 30, 2008.

A teammate of Perez, freshman David Sarabia, was named The Summit League Newcomer of the Year after converting to forward midway through the season from his official position of goalkeeper. He ranked second in the league in points (19) and goals (9), while owning the top spot for game-winning goals with three, and both points per game and goals per game. David garnered first team All-League recognition following his record-setting freshman season. UMKC defender John David Hernandez joined Perez and Sarabia on the league’s top 11. He earned his second career honor, following a second team nod in 2008.

Closer to home, FIU’s Steven Jair Cabas was named to the All-Conference USA Third Team. Cabas had a bounce-back season for FIU, scoring six goals and dishing out five assists to place second on the team with 17 points.

Finally, Garden City Community College’s Federico Agreda was named the most valuable player for soccer in the Jayhawk Conference of the NJCAA. Agreda and six other Broncbusters were named to the all-conference squads.
